Can You Keep James Bond's Dirty Little Secret?

The newest Daniel Craig Bond vehicle is here hot off the hills of one of the best Bond films ever in Skyfall, the original Bond crew (Ms. Moneypenney, M, Q, etc.) is back on the big screen to take on the most classic of Bond baddies– SPECTRE.

I wonder who will play the cat?

The trailer opens with Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny giving Daniel Craig’s James Bond personal effects from Skyfall, his boyhood home — which burned to the ground at the end of the movie of the same name.

“You’ve got a secret — something you can’t tell anyone because you don’t trust anyone,” she adds. Hopefully it's a really dirty one...though it seems like he might actually have a brother...

As usual with Bond films, most of the plot details of “Spectre” have been kept under wraps. The official description: “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”

The name SPECTRE was featured in Ian Fleming’s Bond novels and stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. It’s a fictional global criminal syndicate and terrorist organization, led by supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and first appeared in the novel “Thunderball” and in the film “Dr. No” in 1962.

In the trailer, Bond confronts an enemy, Mr. White, played by Jesper Christensen. “You’re a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr. Bond,” he warns.

In also keeping with the Craig era of casting incredible villains SPECTRE is headed by Christoph Waltz’s Franz Oberhauser, (who has gotta just be Blofield right?) who’s seen briefly in the shadows at the end of the trailer, intoning in his gravelly voice: “Welcome, James. It’s been a long time and finally, here we are.”

My Bond Boner is at full mast.  November 6th is gonna be a good day.
